Routing Overview & Basics in Symfony 2
April 17, 2014 @ 12:10:12

If you're relatively new to using the Symfony2 framework, you might be wondering about some of the things happening during requests to your application. One of these things is the routing and handling of each request. In this new post from NetTuts.com they introduce you to the foundations of Symfony2 routing in a screencast.

In the last video, I said we'd take a look at controllers next, but I actually feel it may be easier to learn the framework in a slightly different order. Instead, we're going to learn about the basics of Symfony 2 routing, to give our applications clean and pretty URLs and make it easy to manage our applications URLs and links. We're not going to get too detailed, as Symfony's routing can do quite a bit, but we'll at least cover what we need to know by keeping it straight and to the point.

The screencast is a bit less than 10 minutes long and provides an overview of the routing, how it interacts with bundles and controllers. There's also a bit about using annotations to help define routing information directly in the controller.

Mikko Koppanen:
PHP extension writing
October 21, 2013 @ 10:35:15

Mikko Koppanen has written up a quick post sharing some work he's done to help make writing extension in PHP a little bit easier. He's created a new project that shares some of his experience in extension development.

I plan to add practical examples related to extension writing. There won't be extensive written documentation outside the code, but hopefully the code itself contains enough nuggets of information to be useful. As the README says, if you need a specific example or clarification on something just open an issue in Github.

The project is still in its early stages, but plans are to have quite a bit more examples as time goes on. Also, as Johannes Schlüter points out in the comments, there's also another example like this - Marcus Boerger's demoext (with accompanying slides).

New Aura System Release, Including Aura.Framework and Aura.Demo
December 19, 2012 @ 11:06:02

The Aura framework project has released a set of updates to several of their packages including the main Aura.Framework and Aura.Demo functionality.

Late last night we released version 1.0.0-beta4 of the full-stack system, which composes all the independent Aura packages into a coherent framework using the Aura.Framework package in a project skeleton. We have extracted the "hello world" portions into their own Aura.Demo package so that it can be removed or disabled when you begin your project. Download it and take it for a spin!

There's been a lot of talk recently about the Aura framework and its "less dependencies, more separate packages" approach to making the framework including these posts from Paul Jones and others.

Extract the Content of Zip file Using PHP
June 13, 2012 @ 10:44:44

On the WebSpeaks.in site, there's a recent tutorial posted showing how you can extract the contents of a zip file from inside a PHP application.

Sometimes you may want the users on your site to upload the zip file and then check what are the contents of that zip file. In this article I will tell you how to extract the contents of the zip file. I temporarily extract the zip files to a directory and then delete it afterwards. You can chose to keep the extracted content if you want.

The tutorial walks you through the code, showing you how to use their "ZipArchive" class to grab the file, extract the contents and display a list of the "child files" inside it. You can see a live demo of it in action or just download the source and dive right in.

June 01, 2012 @ 09:05:05

In this new tutorial to the WebSpeaks blog, Arvind Bhardwj shows you how to hook up to the Google+ API and search profiles for your desired terms.

The main aim of this application is to go familiar with the Google Plus API usage. Google Plus provides an extremely easy to use API to access the public contents on it. Here we will create a simple search application to search user profiles on Google Plus.

Complete code is provided in the post (PHP) and instructions on setting up an "application" on G+ so you can get the keys needed to connect to the API. You can see it in action in the live demo or just download the source to get started.

Creating Your Own Commenting System from Scratch
October 17, 2011 @ 11:30:02

Script-Tutorials.com has a new article posted today showing you how to combine PHP, some CSS, a dash of SQL and some HTML (oh, and jQuery) to create your own commenting system from scratch that could be used anywhere from a simple blog to a more complex social site.

Today I prepared new interesting article - I will tell how you can create own commenting system (AJAX) for your items (any units at your website) with PHP. For our demonstration - I prepared two SQL tables: first table will keep records of our items. It contain several fields: title, description, time of adding and comments count. Another table will keep records of comments. We will use jQuery too (for better interface behavior). One of features will spam protection (we can post no more than one comment every 10 minutes)!

The tutorial includes all of the code, markup and styling you'll need to make the system work. If you'd like to get right into the code you can download it as a package or you can try out their demo.

Gareth Heyes' Blog:
PHP CSSReg
August 23, 2011 @ 10:21:40

Gareth Heyes has a recent post pointing out the port of a project of his, CSSReg (a filtering tool for user-provided stylesheets) over to PHP.

Just a quick post to mention the excellent work by Norman Hippert aka @thewildcat, he successfully converted my Javascript based CSSReg into PHP. I was meaning to do this but never found the time so it's pretty awesome that not only did thewildcat convert the code but found some nice bugs in my code and fixed them. Great work Norman thanks very much!

You can see a demo of it here and grab the source as a download here. You can find out more about the origins of CSSReg (and some of its siblings) in this other post from Gareth.

Creating a Twitter OAuth Application
December 02, 2010 @ 08:49:29

In a recent post to NETTUTS.com, there's a new tutorial that will walk you through the creation of a basic Twitter client that uses their OAuth system for authentication. All of the code is provided so you can follow along.

OAuth can be a tricky concept to wrap your head around at first, but with the Twitter API now requiring its use, it is something you need to understand before creating a Twitter application. This tutorial will introduce you to OAuth, and walk you through the process of creating a basic application.

They show you how to register your application, where to grab the OAuth library from and the code you'll need to make the connection and send tweets. There's also a few other code snippets showing profile image downloading, updating and cached version generation. You can see a demo of the application in action here.

Facebook Style Tag Friends with Jquery, Ajax and PHP
August 26, 2010 @ 09:58:49

On 9Lessons.info today there's a tutorial posted by Srinivas Tamada about creating a simple "tag my friends" system (like Facebook's) with PHP, jQuery and a bit of Ajax magic.

I received a request from my reader that asked to me how to implement Facebook like tag friends in your status or update box. It is great feature to adding friends start with @ symbol. I had tried this with Jquery, Ajax and PHP, it's simple just collaboration of my previous posts.

If you want to skip to the good part, there's a demo and code download otherwise you can follow along with his code that creates a database table, includes the HTML for the interface, a backend PHP script to connect to and some CSS to make it all look a bit nicer.
